Counselor's Corner

Welcome to the KSES Counselor's Corner

  • Dear Families,

    Welcome to the KSES Counselor Corner!  My name is Lauren Frydman and I am your student’s school counselor.  A school counselor is certified/licensed educator who works to improve student success for ALL students by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program.

    The mission of Kate Smith ES school counseling program is to assist all students to reach their full potential, through academic, career and social/emotional development. The school counseling program provides developmentally appropriate activities including individual and small group counseling and classroom guidance lessons that result in students becoming independent, responsible members of society and successful lifelong learners. 

    Please take the time to check out the many resources listed on this page. 

    If you have any questions or concerns, check-in with me here.  This will be used as my mailbox. If you need anything or just want to share a message with me, this is the place to do it. You may also email me at or call (775)353-5720 ext. 54708.
